Stereocaulonsysadm, if your Cloud system works anything like a VPS, you would need access to a metaserver/ superserver that has direct control over the node you are trying to install00:53

ex0agsp2009: another thing to look into is whether your router's (if you use one) firmware and support for dynamic dns services.. i have aftermarket firmware on mine so i can't remember whether the original firmware supported it or not, but mine can automatically update to multiple dynamic dns providers01:12

moonbeami have no toher clicking or hissing sound issues at all02:44
Photocopybecause nothing else I tried first worked02:44
JasonnGuest61741: my recommendation is just install ubuntu-desktop since kubuntu-desktop is probably not in the ubuntu repos. Otherwise, you can just reinstall kubuntu02:44

zombie_ gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel  That fixed it02:48

geoffmccWirelessNot: oops didnt copy whole line in case u wanna look too -- its a  Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)02:59
gaelfxbanker247: that sounds like a real good job for flickr02:59
coz_banker247,  well flickr offers free account and if on gnome  you can install frogr  which is a flcker desktop application02:59
rshackleCranPhotocopy, Your card is an older ATI card, im not going to lie to you they were a bitch and still probably are. I would first try to boot up with an older kernel that worked, then from there if that does not work reinstall the video drivers02:59
coz_banker247,  if on kde  kflickr02:59
banker247ahh so i was using photobucket and it doesn't seem to work that good with ubuntu.. flickr is the solution?02:59
Jasonnbanker247: are they computer savvy? if not, i would say imageshack - if they are, try something like an ftp server, if its local, maybe a samba share?03:00
PhotocopyrshackleCran: I don't know how to boot with an older kernel that worked or if that was updated or anything03:00

zombie_http://paste.ubuntu.com/573768/  Heres what I'm asking03:01
coz_banker247,   I use   frogr   here03:01
rshackleCranPhotocopy, Simplest way would be to reboot and select one of the older versions at the grub boot screen.03:01
banker247does picaasa work well with ubuntu?03:01
rshackleCranPhotocopy, This also might be a problem that is better suited for the forums.03:01
coz_banker247,  it looks somewhat simple but a few minutes and you will get the hang of it,,, it also uploads  mulitple photos and descriptions  at one time03:01
PhotocopyrshackleCran: my laptop doesn't display grub on startup... it just launches straight into ubuntu03:01
PhotocopyrshackleCran: can I force it to show grub's menu?03:02
gaelfxPhotocopy: hold shift while booting to get grub menu03:02

coz_zombie_,   that looks like cairo dock03:05
coz_zombie_,    sudo apt-get install cairo-dock  cairo-dock-plug-ins  I believe  or you can use the weekly bzr PPA03:06
coz_banker247,  on flickr make sure you set the account for public or private viewing... if private only the people you want to view it can view it03:06

triplebabyhow can I tell if I installed skype?03:07
Starminnzombie_: just open the Ubuntu Software Center and search for "dock"03:07
coz_zombie_,  if you want the PPA let me know   I would also open synaptic package manager  and search for cairo dock to make sure you install all of the necessary packages for it03:07

geoffmccWirelessNot: typo or did u run modprobe acer-wmi03:07

coz_Starminn,  ah ok... well  I always push the bzr version since it installs a few experimental plugins as well as being much more up to date03:09

Starminngibss37: No, you don't want ot use WUBI if you can help it04:18
maukarusStarminn, why?04:18
shcherbakAndorin: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling GRUB 2 (method 3 is chroot)04:19
Starminnmaukarus gibss37: I mean, it's fine if you use it on occasion, but the "proper" way is to install it to a partition (which it does automatically for you), plus if something were to happen ot Windows, your Ubuntu would be fried too04:19
Starminngibss37 maukarus: In addition, it will run slower in WUBI than if you had done a proper install.04:20
maukarusStarminn, so it's fine..do you know how to increase the swap file size?04:20
gibss37Starminn: yeah that is the main thing. when ever i tried ubuntu like this and recovered window ubuntu also gets currupted04:20
ubottuswap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info04:20

maukarusgibs recovering windows creates a new mbr/partiton table for windows04:21
Starminnmaukarus: But it doesn't matter because in WUBI if Windows dies, and Ubuntu is in Windows, Ubuntu dies too.04:21
gibss37if i do make 20 gb free new  parition using windows, can i install a fresh there04:22
maukarusStarminn, my point is either way..both would be fried04:22
needhelp1can anyone tell me of a media manager that will rename my music file names by pulling the info from the metadata.. im having issues with getting my music off of my ipod. all the file names are .. garbage.04:22
Starminngibss37: Yeah, I think my Ubuntu is sitting on 30GB and I'm only using 15GB (150GB HDD) while Windows has 90GB since it has my music04:22

GFXdisabledHi Linux gurus. Can anyone tell me how to delete any Nvidia drivers and restore my x server settings to their default in Ubuntu 10.10?04:24
maukarusStarminn, quite often...it's data loss or something that made the table curropt..that would make the system not boot randomly04:24
Starminngibss37: Yes, I dual-boot.04:24
maukarusi dual boot my samsung n150..which is fryed much the same way04:24
Starminnmaukarus: Point taken. I at first couldn't install Ubuntu because I had to defrag Windows twice and CHKDSK once04:25
maukarusblank screen no boot..but it did have 275*f temps last i ran it..04:25
gibss37so if i make a new partition using windows management utility and boot using CD, then ?04:25

shcherbakneedhelp1: and cowbell (used this one on few occasions), if you use gtk-pod and anyplayer your tags should be ok04:25
DasEiGFXdisabled: also you might want to delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf04:25
gibss37so what should i do, please tell me in explanation04:26
GFXdisabledDasEi, you rock so very much!04:26
Starminngibss37: If you pop in the LiveCD and boot from it just hit "Install" and it'll do all that for you. Just hit "Install alongside" drag tohow much space you want to give it, and it'll take care of the rest.04:26
GFXdisabledI thought Ubuntu 10.10 didn't have a xorg.conf by default?04:26
Starminngibss37: Hit "Show me how" on #3 here: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download04:26

gibss37so is it safe, you sure it will make a new partition and install it there04:27
Starminngibss37: I'm sorry, I meant on #404:27
DasEiGFXdisabled: true, but drivers set them up, also users can still use them04:27
Starminngibss37: IF you don't trust it you can manually do it yourself, certainly, but I've installed it twice on this machine while Windows is on it and I've never once had a problem.04:27

StarminnJordan_U: Really? I never tried it, but I was always under the assumption thatit just equally grabbed and allocated space for itself. (For example, if I were to have Windows and SUSE it would only show one of the two on the new slider installer)04:32
Jordan_Ugibss37: If you tell it to install to the free space it will create a root and swap partition automatically.04:32
Jordan_UStarminn: Yes, but he's talking about creating free space before hand.04:33
maukarusjoadri, yes, or at the isp itself, they may advertise they have norton or mcaffe etc or something04:33

Jordan_UAK|lt: dding an Ubuntu iso to a flash drive won't lead to anything bootable, but it doesn't hurt the flash drive.04:49

maukarusjoadri, right click it04:54
joadriI have to window open04:54
bastidrazorAK|lt: aren't you missing a partition number? /dev/sdb1  ?04:54
StarminnProxima|Centauri: YOu mean the difference between Server and Desktop? I'm rpetty sure Server = no GUI. I'm unfamiliar with the server Edition though so just compare the feature list between http://www.ubuntu.com/server and http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop04:54
joadrisorry.. I am saying I have to connect info window open04:54
AK|ltbastidrazor: Perhaps, but I don't know what's wrong with the drive at all04:54
DasEiStarminn: server edition has gui, too, but another packet-selection and default-kernel04:55
maukarus?? ah right04:55
Jordan_Ubastidrazor: No, he doesn't have any partition table at the moment, thus no sdb1.04:55
kothaguy_ubuntuhow to know which kernel i am suing,command to know which kernel i am using04:55
StarminnDasEi Proxima|Centauri: Ah, gotcha. It has a GUI, just not the same as Desktop or anything04:55
maukarusso it doesnt even list a device?04:55
DasEiStarminn: it's just what comes preselected on cd,you can from apt mangle this back and forth04:55
StarminnDasEi: Yeah, I know you can add a GUI. ;) Just saying by default it's not too pretty from what I've heard.04:56
maukarusdoes the laptop have a wifi switch? can u connect with a wire?04:56
joadriI can use a wire yes04:56
Jordan_UAK|lt: Run "sudo fdisk /dev/sdb" to start fdisk, it should give you some warnings that there is no disklabel yet, that's expected.04:56
Proxima|Centauriyeah, I read for server here:  Ubuntu Server on Amazon's Elastic Computing (EC2) cloud allows you to build on-demand virtual systems on almost any scale with minimal in-house hardware requirements. Amazon EC2 fits perfectly with Ubuntu Server Edition's modularity, virtualisation capabilities, range of applications and optimised performance.04:56
DasEiStarminn: surface is same in default install, for headless you must use alternate installer (terminal only, expert install mode)04:56
Proxima|CentauriThis is what I want04:57

Jordan_UAK|lt: type "c" then hit return, then type "u" and hit return.05:08
stignatiusmaukarus, which r the basic pkgs that I should look for?05:08
AK|ltJordan_U: "DOS Compatibility flag is not set" and "Changing display/entry units to sectors" respectively, for outputs05:08
Jordan_UAK|lt: Good, now "n".05:09
tristancwhen my thinkpad t23 is unplugged, it causes the kernel to panic. any ideas?05:09
maukarusstignatius, i'm not sure what part of ubuntu specifically controls network hardware..but a normal install does all this on it's own05:09
Jordan_UAK|lt: And accept the default start and end positions, which should use the entire drive.05:09
joadrimaukarus... I lost you for a second05:09
maukarusotherwise, you will need to install specific drivers..and supported things will install with it..05:10

IvanBliminseI have a quick question about repositories... i want to install docky.. and every website I read says I need to include the repository, but when I go to the software center.. it lets me download and install it.. why do the sites say to include that repository?05:12
AK|ltJordan_U: Then it wants a partition number... 1?05:12
Jordan_UAK|lt: Yes.05:13
maukarusjoadri,  is the device detected and able to browse?05:13

joadriI've been looking for a rule that prevent me from connecting but I can not find anything05:14
maukarushmm verizon..05:14
maukarusso you do have a firewall?05:14
joadriIt's the router, I'm possitive, but I don't know how to address it05:14
StarminnIvanBliminse: A lot of guides are either a.)outdated or b.)just say it in case it isn't there already.05:14
joadriI don't think so05:14
AK|ltJordan_U: lolwut? "WARNING: Re-reading the partition table failed with error 0: Success." Then it says the kernel will use the old table until I reboot or run partprobe(8) or kpartx(8)05:15
maukarusin the browser itself05:15
maukarusverizon may not have this feature05:15
IvanBliminseStarminn: I did check my software sources and the repositories they tell me to include are not there.. am I missing out on updates?05:15
StarminnIvanBliminse: It's basically the equivalent of people in here, there's the GUI way and the Terminal way. Both will work, but the GUI paths can change depnding on customization, but CLI is fool-proof.05:15
joadriI look in the browser and I don't see anything like a rule or fw05:15
syrinx_Joe___: yea im here05:15
StarminnIvanBliminse: The repos may have been merged together into newer ones?05:15
danny_How do i update my video card drivers without having my old drivers clash?05:16
Jordan_UAK|lt: Try running "sudo partprobe".05:16
joadriUnable to connect with chrome neither...05:16
maukarusi'd ask you to reset the router but verizon is weird.. it may be a big headache i have no idea05:16
Joe___real quick, how do you respond to me like that?05:16
AK|ltJordan_U: No output05:16
IvanBliminseI don't know.. the guides i'm reading are for ubuntu 10.04.... the only repositories i have are the 2 regular ones.. i've never added any05:16
Jordan_UAK|lt: Good, do you now have a /dev/sdb1 ?05:16
StarminnIvanBliminse: But you said it installed fine, correct?05:16
maukarusin the end, if all computers are effected..a range of ip's is being blcoked05:16
joadriI read something about device manager in ubuntu, but I don't know05:16
AK|ltJordan_U: ls says so, yes05:17
joadriI guess if I'm able to get to the router I can check05:17
IvanBliminseSarminn, yes i'm just worried that i'll miss out on an update or what not. That and i was curious why every site says to do it ... i figured there must be a reason05:17
syrinx_Joe___: type the name of the person your speaking too first05:17
DasEijoadri: call https://vtunnel.comor similar, connect to FB05:17
joadriBunt no idea how to get to the rourter05:17

maukarusright, and that would verify that all is ok @home05:17
Joe___syrinx_: like this?05:17
maukarusverizon would be happy to walk you thru it if they had people there to do so..05:18

Starminneverybody can follow*05:25
syrinx_Joe____: and how about the cd/dvd drive05:25
joadriIt should be the freaking router with ubuntu, because it does not happen with win705:26
AK|ltJordan_U: Alright... I installed Windows alongside Ubuntu 10.10 earlier today, which I've done before, and went to reinstall GRUB as I've done before... but now, when I boot from my hard drive, nothing happens. I don't think GRUB is even running. I've tried two fixes on the Ubuntu wiki and gotten no results05:26
Joe___a BD-ROM and DVD-ROM05:26
joadriMy entire family use fb and I dont want to shut down ubuntu because of this. No way05:26
Jordan_UPatrickC-school: It depends on your definition of "running Ubuntu 10.10". You could probably do a minimal install with less than 100 meg, but I doubt you'd want that. What are you looking to do with the machine?05:26
maukaruscalling them would be needed if you want his fixed sooner..or use windows.. it's not the router...05:27
Gibss37while new installation of UBUNTU 10.10 i am getting an error that "No root file system is defined..........", i have allocated a fresh spcae like this http://itspriyank.com/Capture.PNG, which is extended one from drive E:05:27

AK|ltJordan_U: No, just one05:27
joadriUbuntu plus home, because I can get to fb from work05:27
StarminnGibss37: When you go to install it you have to mount whatever your want your main partition to be as "/" (a.k.a. "root")05:27
maukarusi just wanted to see, if it detected anything network..means the package is fine, but may not have new drivers, or any05:27
Jordan_UGibss37: Exit the manual partitioning menu and just choose automatic partitioning using the free space.05:28

sqwertleI just recently used AEUSUES(spelling?) to shrink my windows xp partition on my desktop. After doing so the xp partition still worked fine (to my knowledge). I downloaded the 32bit version of 10.04 and burnt it, placed it in my cd drive and restarted my comp. I loaded up the boot menu and told it to boot from CD. It took me to the language selection menu and the menu that asks me if I want to try Ubuntu, Install, Check disc, etc. After05:42
sqwertlethat the splash screen that has the dots that cycle under the logo came up and then my monitor died. The cd light and hard drive light stayed on for a while after that (1 1/2 minutes?). After rebooting my computer when everything stopped XP does the same thing past the xp splash screen. Can't get it to go past either of them.05:42

ubottuk/ed/x/l/ubuntu-desktop is a metapackage. It depends upon other packages and brings them in; you can safely remove it, but it is recommended that you re-install it when upgrading.05:49

DimaVI have Ubuntu Server 10.10 running headless with CLI only. I want to VNC into the machine and use GNOME with it, but only have a minimal install of GNOME that DOESN'T start up with the machine (envoked by VNC only with gnome-sessions &), how would i do that?06:31

arvind_khadriamit, #vbox for virtual box discussion.  You need to have guest additions installed06:35
amitok thanx @ arvind06:36
hermanlfwhen I do 'sudo update-grub' It finds my Windows XP and my CentOS installion but only the XP gets added to grub, centos does not. How can I fix this?06:37
tristancPrinler, try  sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-`uname -r`06:37
gaelfxZeroZiat: ok, it looks like you need to fix this via windows, cause as far as I can tell, the overlapping partitions are windows partitions. have you tried any windows partition editing programs? also, which version of windows?06:37
ZeroZiatgaelfx: I got Windows XP SP3, I've really no idea what I would do with the partition tools yet, I wasn't aware they were 'overlapping' until gparted told me.06:38
Jordan_UZeroZiat: What partitions are you planning to delete? It looks like deleting sda3 would solve the overlap (though I'd have to double check that to be sure).06:38
gaelfxZeroZiat: just so you know, I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with the MBR being over-written (could be wrong, but that shouldn't affect what you're trying to do)06:39
tristancPrinler, any luck?06:40
ZeroZiatJordan_U: I dunno if you catched my conversation with gaelfx from the beggining, I have a spare partition with an older Ubuntu (i think it's 6.06) which I am planning to delete, and install Ubuntu 10.10.06:40
tristancyou're welcome06:40
gaelfxZeroZiat: also, is there anything on those windowws partitions that you really need to keep, or could you possibly reinstall windows?06:40
ZeroZiatgaelfx: Oh, ok, cause I thought it did considering gparted can't see anything, it only lists my drive as empty and the text parted tool actually says something useful, (the drives are overlappin)06:40
ZeroZiatgaelfx: Yeah, I was planning to leave their integrity pretty much intact, making this operation harder. :s06:41
gaelfxZeroZiat: no, I think that's more a bug with gparted, but it's kinda irrelevant since that won't get fixed right now06:41
PrinlerOk im installing new liniux-alsa-drivers-moduals06:42
gaelfxZeroZiat: I'm not sure how to use the text version of parted to delete a partition, but I think if you do use it to delete that linux partition, you should be able to use gparted to fix it afterwards06:42
ZeroZiatgaelfx: You sure? :D06:42
Jordan_UZeroZiat: It looks like what you have is two primary NTFS (windows) partitions, sda1 and sda3,  and an extended partition, sda2, containing a logical swap partition, sda5. sda2 and sda5 are probably left over from the Ubuntu install and removing them should get rid of any overlap.06:42
MetaxaHello folks. Anyone able to help me setup empathy so I can use it as my IRC client instead of needing to use the web client, or a link for such information?06:43

Prinler@#%@#$ still doesnt show my HDMI06:43
=== Inumedia_ is now known as Inumedia
gaelfxZeroZiat: also, you would have to resize one of the windows partitions to get space for the ubuntu06:44
gaelfxZeroZiat: have you considered making a persistent liveusb?06:44
ZeroZiatgaelfx: You sure? the ubuntu partition which I'd delete would make enough space for ubuntu.06:44
Jordan_UZeroZiat: First, right now before anything else, tell me what the output of "cat /proc/swaps" is.06:45
ZeroZiatgaelfx: Also I tried doing that with my cellphone's memory card, it went well and all but my cellphone wouldn't come to terms with it and would start making default folders everywhere, so I cancelled that project.06:45
ZeroZiatJordan_U, I'm not on ubuntu at the moment, I'm on my windows partition.06:45
bc81Metaxa: i've never used empathy for IRC (prefer XChat), but maybe try Edit > Accounts > Add > Protocol = IRC > Apply06:46
Jordan_UZeroZiat: The Ubuntu partition is using the same space as one of the windows partitions, hence "overlapping".06:46
ZeroZiatAnd I can't access that one installed ubuntu partition cause windows overwrote the mbr, i could try with my gparted live cd, tho.06:46
gaelfxZeroZiat: the ubuntu partition exists in a place where another partition already exists, so there is no space for it, that's what's causing the problem in the first place06:46
ZeroZiathmm, i see.06:47
ZeroZiatso to clear up: My two partitions of windows, one is being held by a swap to a logical partition, are not overlapping. My ubuntu partition though, is overlapping some partition or somesuch..., right?06:48
gaelfxZeroZiat: http://pastebin.com/H0eSyqTK look at the numbers, the linux partition starts about the same place as the second windows partition06:48
testingempathyMetaxa: yep, just tried it out.  typing from empathy right now.  after setting up the account, go to Room > Join and put #ubuntu06:48
gaelfxZeroZiat: correct. i think you can use parted to remove the offending partition, I'm just checking the syntax about how to do that for you06:49
Metaxabc81: I did that, went to join the room #ubuntu, then nothing happens.06:49
tristancPrinler, i had to compile my own sound driver on an older machine once. could that be part of the problem?06:49
Jordan_UZeroZiat: Right now the only "linux" partition you have is a swap partition, sda5, which is contained within an extended partition, sda2.06:49

bc81WaterRatj: did you enstall drivers for your GFX card?07:35
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, also why is there like 4 entries on GRUB similar to this: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35-25-generic ?07:35
WaterRatjno, just installed ubuntu and saw that ubuntu had compiz installed07:35
WaterRatjSo I need to install drivers? where do I get them exactly?07:35
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, and 4 similar to this: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31-14-generic ?07:35
bc81WaterRatj: hmm..check system > admin > additional drivers07:36
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, updating GRUB appears to have done nothing, it is still adding the old entry for Windows Vista.07:36
=== Inumedia_ is now known as Inumedia
WaterRatjSays no appropriate drivers isntalled07:36
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: Those are older kernels. Whenever a new kernel is installed the old one is kept in case of problems with the newer one.07:36
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: What is the output of "sudo os-prober"?07:37
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, /dev/sda1:Windows Vista (loader):Windows:chain07:38
=== Masshuu_ is now known as masshuu
bc81WaterRatj: i can't help you further as this is unfamiliar to me. what kind of system is it, what video card etc07:38
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: What happens when you try to use the Vista entry?07:38
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, the screen goes blank and then it returns me to the GRUB menu.07:39
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, I had a Ubuntu / Vista dual boot before. I was using GRUB to switch between the two. Vista became unusable so I upgraded to 7, that didn't fix my Vista issues so I performed a clean installation of Windows 7. Then I decided I didn't want GRUB and downloaded EasyBCD. Then things went wrogn.07:41
gaurav_helphow i mount my drives from terminal07:41
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, I'd just like GRUB to show two menu entries. Windows 7 and Ubuntu. With both working.07:41

ZeroZiatI deleted sda2 and sda5, I asked parted to run 'print' again. It said that the partitions were overlapping, yet again.07:44
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, I had massive problems with GRUB a long time ago. I couldn't boot into anything. Somebody on here helped me manually fix things, and it took hours. GRUB is really messed up.07:45
lafa_I have installed grub-efi on my imac, i can load fine into grub; here the keyboard works. Now when i boot ubuntu none of the input devices work07:47
WaterRatjOk, Installed my video driver. Where do I go again for enabling compiz?07:48

mage7hello...I want to install an older version of gdb  (6.8 instead of 7.2)  because apparently it doesnt work with Qt Creator...07:59
mage7but when i try to remove  the newer version using Synaptics package manager, it says i have to also remove qt-sdk which i dont want to do ...is there any way to work around this07:59
ruanmage7: you could remove both and reinstall qt-sdk08:00
mage7thanks for reply ruan...ok Synaptics says that qt-sdk is 32 KB..so to reinstall will hopefully only take 32KB? because i am on dial-up and i dont want to download the entire Qt-sdk (several 100s of MBs)08:02
jqkemage7: i think that normaly when you got aptitutde remove ... it just uninstall but dont remove the package from local directory.08:04
jqkemage7: so next install, you should need to download  if you use remove and not purge08:05
rumpe1mage7, qt-sdk is a meta-package... that's the reason why it's so small and it have to download much more packages08:05
mage7rumpe1: so removing or reinstalling it wont also remove/reinstall all the other packages?08:06
rumpe1mage7, removing will only remove the metapackage... the 32kB08:06
=== 14WAAUIGD is now known as punknroll
rumpe1mage7, the dependend packages will still be there unless you do a apt-get autoremove08:07
mage7ok thanks...so i will remove (but not purge) gdb along with qt-sdk and try to install the older version and then reinstall qt-sdk and see what happens08:08
rumpe1mage7, reinstalling qt-sdk will update the gdb-version to the version in the dependencies of qt-sdk08:09
rumpe1mage7, but you can try pinning the gdb-version08:09

SealedWithAKissI have a problem with GRUB, can anybody help?08:15
mage7SealedWithAKiss .I doubt i can help...but could you describe the problem...is the entry missing from GRUB?08:16
nelson09SealedWithAKiss, Its possible I could help too. please describe whats wrong.08:16
SealedWithAKissmage7, I installed Windows 7 over Windows Vista. The entry for Vista is still in GRUB, however it doesn't boot into Windows.08:16
mage7rumpe1....can you tell me how to pin the gdb-version08:17
rumpe1mage7, there should be some option in synaptic like "force version" or similar08:17
mage7rumpe1...ok thanks found it..trying08:19
ruanis there a reason why programs ran with superuser privileges don't apply a theme?08:19
SealedWithAKissnelson09, I removed Vista and installed Windows 7. I then downloaded a tool called EasyBCD because I wanted to use the Windows boot loader instead of GRUB. Since rebooting I have been unable to boot into Windows, since I'm taken automatically to GRUB, and the only Windows entry is the old Vista one which no longer works.08:20
ruaneg. synaptic or gksudo gedit08:20
rumpe1SealedWithAKiss, you have to update grub08:21
SealedWithAKissrumpe1, , "sudo update-grub" does nothing.08:21
rumpe1SealedWithAKiss, define "nothing"08:21
SealedWithAKissrumpe1, it doesn't change the entries in the GRUB menu.08:21
rumpe1SealedWithAKiss, how about "sudo os-prober"08:21
SealedWithAKissrumpe1, that produces /dev/sda1:Windows Vista (loader):Windows:chain08:22
mage7hello...guys will running grub-install help SealedWithAKiss08:22
SealedWithAKissWindows 7 is on /dev/sda108:22
SealedWithAKissThe Vista entry points to HD 0 and partition 1 - where Windows is located, right?08:23
nelson09that entry SEEMS correct, however partitions / HDD numbers can be different. Usually "sudo update-grub" will rescan for any other OS.08:24

SealedWithAKissIn order to make absolutely sure it hasn't changed anything I'll take the system down for a reboot.08:25
nelson09I saw that post earlier. Does indeed complicate things... Try the command "fdisk -l" this will list the partitions on the HDDs and how they are formated.08:25

michelefor my nebook08:29
Metaxanice, i've been using the same for some time now08:29
nelson09SealedWithAKiss, I believe you logged off before I sent my last message. Try the command "fdisk -l". This will list the partitions on the drive and how they are formatted. by looking for NTFS, you should be able to verify sda1 / partition 1 etc.08:29
SealedWithAKissmage7, the screen goes momentarily blank and then takes me back to the GRUB menu. Nothing is displayed.08:29
michelebut I don't know my kernel08:29

SealedWithAKissnelson09, yes.08:32

SealedWithAKissnelson09, I typed in GRUB at the command line and it told me it wasn't installed. I've done sudo apt-get instal grub and it's told me that there's no menu.lst so I hit Y to generate one. Now there isn't even a Vista entry.08:33

SealedWithAKissJordan_U, any progress?08:49
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: You appear to have done some odd, and in some cases incorrect, things to try to add a windows entry manually to grub. And I don't see any automtic entry in either of the two grub.cfgs you have (again odd that you have two). I really am too tired to sort it all out at the moment. I'd say try booting with Super GRUB2 Disk (burn it to a CD, unetbootin will *not* work) and if that doesn't allow you to boot windows then look for another computer08:51
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, do you anticipate that this miss will take a long time to sort out? I don't have a CD to hand.08:52

SealedWithAKissJordan_U, is re-installing the whole OS a quick-fix option? I really need this sorted as soon as possible.08:54
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: Yes, re-installing Windows should fix it.08:55
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, I mean Ubuntu.08:55
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: No, I don't think that will help, though I'm not sure.08:55
dc5alaDewi: you can check /var/log/Xorg* log files08:56
ruan_SealedWithAKiss: fastest solution i can think of is emulation08:56
SealedWithAKissI don't know what to do. It doesn't appear as though anybody in here is experienced enough to be able to help me resolve this problem, perhaps other than Jordan_U but he's understandably tired.08:57
mage7if SealedWithAKiss ran fixmbr from the windows seven cd would that enable him to boot into seven (at the cost of losing grub and ability to boot into ubuntu temporarily)08:57
SealedWithAKissThat means I have no chance!08:57
White-Horseok please do not kick me or ban but i really must flame ubuntu for a 1 or 2 mins why the hell did ubuntu decide to drop support for nvida cards when nvidia has always supported linux it was ati that was not on board right up till 9.10 everything was fine then 10.04 comes out and bang no more nvida support i just do not understand why break something that wasn't broke what the hell is going on ?08:57

GneaWhite-Horse: again, wrong.09:01
satyahow to recover commands in the history after delete?09:01
mage7White-Horse: It is the same with Windows as well..when you install windows you have to use Windows update to download the nvidia drivers09:02
GneaWhite-Horse: what method are you trying to use to install the driver?09:02
White-Horsewhen i scan for drivers ubuntu says none are in use/found09:02
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, will you be able to tell me how? It's a risk I'm willing to take.09:02
GneaWhite-Horse: 'when i scan' <-- what does that mean?09:02

White-Horseunder sys admin hardware drivers09:02
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, I'd love to remove Linux but I need it. I need both Linux and Windows equally. Getting them to co-exist just causes me trouble though.09:03
White-Horsejust like i did in 9.1009:03
ruan_lol, windows update never got me updated nvidia drivers09:03
mage7SealedWithAKiss you might end up in a situation without neither windows or ubuntu09:03
GneaWhite-Horse: alright, what is the output of this command:  lspci | grep VGA09:03
satyaruan_: in ubuntu all of the commands previously run are stored in the history09:03

satyaruan_: i deleted with history -c. now how to recover it?09:03
ruan_satya: you mean terminal?09:03
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, assuming this ruins absolutely everything and I can't boot into either partition, a Live CD will help me right?09:04
satyaruan_: yes09:04
GneaWhite-Horse: yes, well, I run a bunch of 10.04 systems and they all found the right driver for the nvidia cards on them.09:04
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: If that doesn't help though, seriously give up for now and go to a computer lab on campus or something.09:04

SealedWithAKissJordan_U, I have ran the commands. My fate now lies with the computer Gods.09:05
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: If your Ubuntu install is 64 bit you will need a 64 bit liveCD to follow that guide.09:05
White-Horsethen why is all this stuff in the ubuntu fourms09:05
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, it is a 64-bit installation.09:05
GneaWhite-Horse: without a url, your complaint is meaningless.09:05
Jordan_USealedWithAKiss: Again, if that doesn't help though, seriously give up for now and go to a computer lab on campus or something to finish your homework.09:06

Gneathere's usually someone with their head screwed on correctly in here that can help09:14
White-Horsethats 1 other thing it will not let me said up hardware raid 009:15
White-Horsesays only software raid 1 is supported09:15
Gneausually myself, actionparsnip, Jordan_U, among others...09:15
Gneawell, you need a real hardware raid solution to do hardware raid09:15
satyaruan_: i got it with this command: cat /home/username/.bash_history09:15
Gneaand if you're going to do raid, might as well be hardware based09:16
White-Horsei have one09:16
Gneasoftware raid just plain sucks09:16
White-Horsei know09:16
GneaWhite-Horse: how many times have you done the whole lvm+encryption setup?09:17
White-Horsein fact it was actionparsnip that gave me a url to fix the boot up issues with ubuntu 10.04 and the nvidia driver proms.09:17
Gneaah okay09:17
linatrrixhow i can make cd image from installed Ubuntu Distro09:18
Bohemian_CowDriver proms sounds romantic09:18
White-Horsehe said he made alittle script to fix that09:18
ruan_.bash_history shows my learning timeline09:18
White-Horsei done the lvm+encryption since 8.0409:18
GneaI think I tried it a couple times..... something got screwed up at somepoint and my home directory wouldn't fsck anymore09:19
Gneaso I tossed it and reinstalled09:19
White-Horsei never had that prom09:19
White-Horseit always works 100%09:19
Gneayeah, 'prom' isn't recognizable as 'problem'09:20
White-Horseits shorter to type09:20
GneaI wonder if the alt cd isn't utilizing something that the desktop cd does09:20
ruan_prob also works09:20
satyaruan_: what is learning timeline09:20
ruan_satya: how i learned to use terminal09:21
Gneayes, 'prob' makes more sense09:21
ruan_satya: a timeline of how i used terminal and learned to use it09:21
White-Horseok well when i get my Dell Optiplex 780 i will try again with ubuntu 10.04 and come back here for help with the nvidia driver09:21
GneaDell's can be tricky, but they tend to 'just work' for the most part09:22
White-Horseas for now i will stay with the Dell Workstation T3400 on Windows Server09:22
gibss37when install ubuntu using free space it says no root file system is defined09:22
Gneabest oxymoron I've read all day09:22
Gneawell, I'm off to bed09:23
ruan_gibss37: i think you need to make a partition formatted as ext409:23
White-Horsethank you Gnea :)09:23
GneaWhite-Horse: good luck :)09:23
gibss37when i try to make it an ext4 using gparted and then select it it says no swap memory selected09:23
White-Horsesorry for flaming but sometimes i just do not understand why things are done lol09:23
White-Horsei really do like ubuntu very much09:23
Gneanot a problem, you didn't go off the deep end with it09:24
ruan_gibss37: you might need a swap partition as well i guess09:24
POPEYEhow to get any network activity tray icon09:24
POPEYEin xfce09:24
FloodBot2POPEYE: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.09:24
ruan_POPEYE: add to panel > system monitor09:24
GneaWhite-Horse: most of the time, people come in here complaining about stuff and never stop to think that the more they complain, the worse their problem gets09:24
gibss37ruan_:  so what should i do, i am on windows, should i make two partitions one for swap and other for ubuntu09:24
White-Horsebut thats also how you get change done09:24
satyaruan_: i got history in my machine. but i could not got in my client machine, with bash_history09:25
White-Horseif no one complains nothing gets done09:25
GneaWhite-Horse: not around here, most of the time it results in expulsion09:25
White-Horsewell maybe i will send an email to the makers of ubuntu :)09:25
White-Horseand ask them what the hell they are doing09:26
POPEYE" add to panel > system monitor" in xfce no those item09:26
ruan_what is xfce?09:26
Gneathat's what I've wondered too at times09:26
ubottuXubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce instead of !GNOME. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org and http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels09:26
ruan_so there is xfce, gnome, and kde09:26
satyaruan_:   what is shopt -s histappend and PROMPT_COMMAND=history -a09:26
White-Horsei did read the reason for removing the driver is because ubuntu wants to be 100% open source09:26
ruan_satya: it brings history back if it hasn't been cleared09:26
GneaWhite-Horse: well, it hasn't been removed from 10.04 or 10.1009:27
GneaWhite-Horse: and that isn't really true - Debian is that way for sure09:27
White-Horsebut at the same time ubuntu says it wants to be easy enough even for someone that never used linux before09:27
GneaWhite-Horse: but Ubuntu strives to do what Debian can't and won't do09:27
gibss37is there a need of three differentpartitions namely : 1. root ( / ) in ext4  2. home (/home ) in ext4 and 3. swap09:28
solaris0:Gnea xfce is a type of window manager09:28
ruan_i find ubuntu easier than windows.09:28
Gneasolaris0: I know.09:28
Gneaanyway, as I said, it's sleepy time09:29
White-Horsewell i must be crazy because when i use on 9.10 ubuntu found the nvidia driver on its own and installed and config X on it own now with 10.04 it does not do that anymore09:29
Madpilotgibss37, that's the usual partition setup, yes09:29
satyaruan_:   what is PROMPT_COMMAND=history -a09:29
ruan_satya: im not sure, i googled for that09:29
ikoniaWhite-Horse: you always have to enable the nvidia video module manually with the drivers tool09:29
ikoniaWhite-Horse: that has been the case in every release.09:29
White-Horsenot in 9.1009:29
gibss37Madpilot:  so which one should i use for installing  from those three09:29
ikoniaWhite-Horse: yes, in 9.10 the propritary nvidia modules won't get enabled unless you tell it do09:30
White-Horsein 9.10 ubuntu asked you if you wanted to installed the driver09:30
Madpilotgibss37, which one what? your system lives in /, your own files in /home, swap is, well, swap. All three are in use.09:30
White-Horsein 10.04 it does not evne find it .09:30
ikoniaWhite-Horse: yes, so you selected "yes" therefore enabling it09:30
ikoniaWhite-Horse: what video card is it?09:31
mage7I still don't understand White-Horse's difficulty exactly ..was he trying to do something technical....my ubuntu installed pretty much out of the box except for nvidia drivers but that was just 2 clicks away at System>Administration>Additional drivers...I am noob to linux and it didnt require anything else09:31
White-HorseeVGA GT 43009:31
gibss37no i am saying when it says to select a partition to install ubuntu, where should point the setup09:31
ikoniaWhite-Horse: is that card supported by the current Nvidia driver modules ?09:31
ruan_for me it came up with the option to install drivers and i installed current.09:31
ikoniaWhite-Horse: how do you know ?09:31
ruan_and it works perfectly09:31
White-Horsei checked09:31
ikoniaWhite-Horse: where ?09:31
amokhey people. where I can set PATH for superuser ?09:31
White-Horseright from nvidia website09:32
amok/home/amok/.bashrc ?09:32
ikoniaso when you go to the additional drivers menu, does it offer you an nvidia module to install ?09:32
White-Horsei have never seen that additional drivers menu in ubuntu 10.0409:32
White-Horsei only see hardware drivers09:33
ruan_not under system > admin > additional drivers?09:33
ikoniaWhite-Horse: it's in system->administration09:33
ikoniaWhite-Horse: hardware drivers is the tool09:33
=== Nick is now known as SealedWithAKiss
ikoniaWhite-Horse: does that offer you an nvidia driver ?09:33
White-Horsei do not know because i never seen that09:33
gibss37like i have 4 gb of ram so do i need 8 gb swap09:34
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, the machine died. R.I.P.09:34
White-Horsei look for drivers the same way i did in 9.1009:34
ikoniaWhite-Horse: ok, I suggest you look in the hardware drivers menu09:34
cvrseis there anyway to name the virtual desktops while running compiz?09:34
SealedWithAKissJordan_U, I'm using a friends netbook.#09:34
MadpilotWhite-Horse, it's System->Admin->Hardware Drives on 9.10 as well, though.09:34
ikoniaWhite-Horse: look for drivers using the tool I've just told you09:34
White-Horseyes but soon as i scan for driver 9.10 found them right away09:35
ikoniaWhite-Horse: look for drivers using the tool I've just told you09:35
Fleckhello, have ubuntu 10.10 server, have set up bridge in interfaces and dhcpd3 - problem is - dhcpd3 tries to start up before bridge is ready... and never gets started on starup...09:35

koodoughgibss37: what was your question09:37
bivowhere does flash keep the loaded videos? It used to keep them in /tmp09:37
ruan_SealedWithAKiss: cant boot at all?09:37
gibss37koodough: I have 4gb of ram do i need 8 gb swap09:37
ruan_gibss37: depends what you're going to do09:38
koodoughgibss37: what are you using the computer for? Mostly the answer is no09:38
ruan_!swap | gibss3709:38
ubottugibss37: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info09:38
bivogibss37 for 99.999% of people, no09:38
gibss37i would be using ubuntu for only running apache for my website09:39
gibss37so how much swap i should go for09:39
ikoniagibss37: it really depends on your machine, and how many hits you'll get09:39
koodoughgibss37: meh. Really up to you. I would put 2gb for the heck of it09:39
ruan_personally i use no swap at all, but i do nothing ram-heavy09:40
rumpe1gibss37, if there's plenty of free space, just use some gigs for swap... for worst cases09:40
koodoughgibss37: you probably won't use it for a apache server09:40
gibss37koodough:  why ?09:40
gibss37i dont want have a vps on ther systems09:41
rumpe1gibss37, you can always add swap-files to swap-space manually ... if you think you need more09:41
jatttoday I uninstalled openoffice, office on a windows virtual machine is way faster09:42
koodoughgibss37: Harddrive are so big today that 2gb for swap isn't a problem. You dont have to have any, which some of my system don't. Apache doesn't use much ram so I would not worry09:42
eosshello trying to install this rapidsvn but getting this error configure: error: APR is required. Try --with-apr-config.09:42

ruan_SealedWithAKiss: can't boot off a flash usb?09:49
bivowhere does flash keep the loaded videos? It used to keep them in /tmp09:50
SealedWithAKissruan_, You need to use EasyBCD to create a bootable USB on another Windows machine. Then copy the contents of the ISO you downloaded from our ISO to the USB, and use EasyBCD to add a WinPE entry pointing to the .WIM file on the USB. Apparently.09:50

ikoniastuart: first question are you using any raid disks ?09:57
stuartno, single hard drive, one OS never installed anything but ubuntu09:57
ikoniastuart: so there is no other OS on it, just ubuntu ?09:58
ikoniastuart: ok, how many partitions on the disk ?09:58
stuartnot sure, command line command to assess this?09:59
dhirenI have only one partiton on disk and i want to install one more os . can somebody help me with this09:59
ikoniastuart: pastebin the output of "sudo fisk -l" please10:00
ikoniadhiren: you just need to resize that partition to make space, create a new partition and install the OS there10:00
dhirenhow to resize10:01
ikoniadhiren: use a tool such as gparted, but you'll have to do it from the livecd as your partition will be in use10:01
dhirenok..can i make one more parition with it10:02
ikoniadhiren: if you have space, sure10:02
ikoniadhiren: if not make space as I just told you10:02

stuartyeah, pretty stripped down laptop at this point...also makes me think the solution will be simple10:03
ikoniastuart: you're running on a livecd now ?10:03
stuartno, i used supergrub2disk to boot...i can also enter in a bunch of stuff at the prompt to boot manually as well, but that is slow10:03
ikoniastuart: use an ubuntu live cd so we use the correct grub versions to restore10:04
stuarthmm...not possible to do without the live CD?  I only ask, because doing things in the live environment is pretty slow10:05
Jordan_Uikonia: Super GRUB2 Disk boots the actual installed system, so it's better in that respect than a liveCD.10:05
ikoniastuart: that's just a fact of life, you need to use the right tools with the right versions10:05
ikoniaJordan_U: it's booting from his hard disk ?10:05

SealedWithAKissserUSUL, I was having problems with Vista. I upgraded to Windows 7 and then discovered that it didn't resolve my problems, so I performed a clean installation. Windows removed GRUB and since I wanted to use the Windows boot loader to access both Ubuntu and Windows 7 I downloaded EasyBCD. Upon rebooting there was no option for Windows 7, only a Linux option. Hitting enter on the Linux option caused GRUB to load which had an ent10:52
SealedWithAKisssry for my old Vista partition. This wouldn't boot Windows however, whenever I select it the screen would go blank and it would return me to the GRUB menu. So I booted into Ubuntu and sought advice in here. In the end I installed an MBR application of some kind and attempted to correct the MBR from the Ubuntu command line. Upon rebooting I received an error stating that a particular file was corrupt and Windows couldn't boot (10:52
SealedWithAKisssI don't remember the file name, something with neo and grub0.mbr in it). I am now using a Ubuntu Live USB to attempt to gain help. I have a university assignment due in later today and need to fix this problem so that I can use Visual Studio. That's the long story.10:52

venkateshcan anybody tell how to remove a package installed using .tbz file12:31
boota2Why remove this functionality from /etc/rc scripts?12:31
ruan_venkatesh: how did you install it?12:31
boota2I don't get it.12:31
LjLvenkatesh: you need to remove the files manually, unless the .tbz ball came with an uninstall script12:31
venkateshi have installed using tar -Pxvjf filename.tbz12:31
=== Guest93191 is now known as yacc
LjLvenkatesh: that doesn't install anything, that just decompresses it12:31
jpdsboota2: Because Ubuntu now uses Upstart and its configuration files are in /etc/init/ .12:32
boota2Oh, ok.12:32
boota2And are there any reasons to do this?12:32
venkateshLjl : no it as installed and i can see it in accesories12:32
sdaruan_, seems like a bit this http://superuser.com/questions/217651/ubuntu-2tb-drive-unable-create-partition12:32
LjLvenkatesh: then you did something else to install it12:32
iguchihi guys... any ideas: i'm running 10.10 with metacity (from ppa.launchpad.net) and window switching lags like crazy... with six windows it takes a bit over 3 seconds to scroll through all of them! hw is old and slow (s3 unichrome pro), but still no other problem with graphics so only this alt-tab thing is weird.12:33
jpdsboota2: Boot-speed.12:33
iguchii have harvested through google for days with no luck :/12:33
venkateshLjL:no i have give tar -Pjxvf filename.tbz to install, then i can see the tool in the accesories12:34

ssbplssipior: the system call pages i have installed.12:42
sipiorssbpls: one place to start: http://kernelnewbies.org/ . Robert Love's book is also pretty good.12:42
g00seI'm intending to make a bootable usb stick from a maverick cd image. When  it boots, how can i give it kernel options (specifically noapci)?12:42
boota2I'm not able to google any manual about new ubuntu boot proccess.12:43
boota2Where should I look?12:43
ActionParsnipg00se: hold shift at boot and you can use e to edit the options12:44
sacarlsonboota2: that would be grub212:44
DarkStar1Has anyone tried installing ubuntu from a usb stick before?12:44
g00seActionParsnip: thanks12:44

iceroot!anyone | DarkStar112:45
ubottuDarkStar1: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.12:45
ActionParsnipG00se: or remaster the iso so it has it by default12:45
sacarlsonboota2: ok well it's broken into two parts you can start at one point /etc/init.d/*  but there is also a new section I would have too lookup that involves states12:46
DarkStar1Oook Can I mount the ubuntu ISO from a usb stick and install from there?12:46
sdaHi all, during the installation of ub10.10 partition creation never ends, WHY? (Ps on debian i can do it)12:46

boota2sacarlson: but it seems, that even networking and mounting filesystems at boot is done the other way now12:47
boota2i hate ubuntu12:47
abhijitwhat does this error mean? configure: error: No uuid_create or uuid_generate function in library libuuid or uuidgen function present12:47

abhijitActionParsnip: erUSUL help12:47
boota2sacarlson: and i don't see any documentation about it12:47
boota2i'm old and stupid i guess12:48
sipiorssbpls: i suppose you could mark up the kernel docs yourself, but i'm not aware of any man page collections for the lower-level kernel internals. troff markup is fun, for certain values of "fun".12:48
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: use the 1 2 3 app from pendrive Linux in windows or unetbootin in Linux and windows to put the installer on the usb properly12:48
